iPhone will notify about your laundry

Another way to make your life just a little bit easier and funnier by The folks that brought you It’sthisforthat. DryerBro, an app that uses an accelerometer to let you know when your laundry’s done.

With DryerBro you put your iPhone or iTouch on your laundry machine and it texts you and the remaining members of your laundry party when your laundry’s done.

 

Once set up, DryerBro uses an accelerometer and Twilio to send a SMS, email or call to multiple phones when your unmentionables are ready to be picked up.

 

Creator Eric Kerr Says, “We live in a house with 11 dudes, and we’re seriously unorganized about laundry. We all want to use the machine on the weekends, but no one ever knows when the last load was done”.

 

So they built DryerBro. “We originally looked to see if an app already used the accelerometer to detect when your laundry is done but we couldn’t find anything – it’s a blue ocean strategy,” he says.

 

Both the DryerBro FAQ and Promo video are awesome. You can download the iPhone app here. Promo video below.
